I’ve heard many times developers saying "I am looking into UXP first, then I’ll try React... sometime in the future". I can understand: they are intimidating subjects. Still, I believe it’s a majestic waste of time. 

Learning React for its own sake in some kind of standard/simplified web environment of sorts, then trying to retrofit this newly acquired and wobbly knowledge of yours into UXP is a needlessly frustrating and time consuming process. You end up having doubts about UXP, doubts about React, and no way to tell what’s wrong and how to fix it.

Avoiding this pain is possible, and it's exactly the book’s agenda. I’ll guide you through the peculiar features of Adobe's brand new and exciting UXP environment to develop JavaScript plugins, introducing React tools as we need them, and reviewing them in more depth later on, when we've built more solid foundations.

The Book

Digital edition only: 290 pages strong PDF bundled with 16 demo plugins. Lifetime free updates.

The Videotutorials

Five and a half hours of HD screencasts expanding dedicated topics to remove all doubts and get the most out of it. I plan to add more video content in the future, as the UXP platform evolves. Updates will be free.

  Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for?

My target audience is a developer with a decent JavaScript background, zero knowledge of React and UXP. If you know some, all the better; if you don’t, you won’t be disappointed—I rather prefer to start slow and build up.
If you’re a CEP developer and/or you’re familiar with another framework e.g. Vue.js you’re fully covered, although you’re going to complain a lot 😊 I did it myself, and big time! But that’s totally OK, UXP is not CEP and React is not [insert your framework of choice]

What Creative Cloud applications are supported?

At the moment, UXP is available to third-party developers in Adobe Photoshop from the 2021 version (22.x), and Adobe XD. The book is based on Photoshop, but 100% of the concepts can be extended to other CC applications, as soon as they implement UXP.

Sample Content? Sure!
